5:46 am
>> i signed up and they had the e-mail address that i wanted and now i continue to keep it because a lot of my customers, i do a lot of corporate catering and they leave the company, you know, but they remember my e-mail address so they will call. >> debbie pace $4.99 a month. she doesn't like paying that fee with all the free i mail accounts out there, but she feels like she has to keep the aol account. >> so have you asked them can i just keep the address and not pay you per month? >> yeah, and they told me it's $4.99. >> that isn't much, still $4.99 a month comes out to almost $60 a year. >> that's true. that is true. okay, so you are going to tell me i can get it for free? >> i'm not going to. this guy is. alex is the associate editor at p. c. world makezine. >> i know people who keep their old aol screen names to use them for old time sack but known i

know pays for them. aol offers a lot of services and some find benefit but alex said you don't have to hang to hang on to your aol e-mail address. >> it's relatively easy to downgrade it to a free level. all you have to do is log in and go to your account settings and select change my billing plan and downgrade to a cheaper account and if you want to have a free account you downgrade to free. >> even if you don't think you have a paid aol account it's world your time to pull out your credit card statements. the bill monitoring service,, says it finds customers died for dial-up service they thought they had abandoned a while ago. >> i recommend to the viewers, take a look. if you subscribed to it it may still be on your bill and you can take action quickly by calling them up and having it canceled. >> we've been in contact with aol but haven't received any information from the company on
5:48 am
the issues. to see if you are paying for your aol e-mail and want to change it to a free service if you want, i posted a link on our website. go to and click on the "7 on your side" page. i'm michael finney, 7 on your side. we had glorious weather for all the folks who came into town and those who live here. we can all enjoy it. >> we still have good weather. high pressure will still hold on for a couple days. beneath that high pressure religion there is very dense fog this morning. as we head outside, the east bay camera, you can still see the bay bridge and the visibility has been reduced to about an eighth of a mile in the east bay. but that's not the worst spot. with have it in the south bay and a dense fog advisory through 9:00 this morning for the valleys of the north bay where visibility has been reduced to less than a quarter of a mile. so everyone in the pea soup this morning. good morning, live doppler 7 hd not showing any precipitation.
5:49 am
but that will change. we have another 48 hours or so of some dry weather before we look for the rain and wind to head our way in this first system. so the dense fog anywhere from an eighth to a quarter mile visibility, particularly here in our north bay valleys. but as i showed you that live shot, you will see in oakland with the reduced visibility, napa, novato, santa rosa and all the way down through mountain view and san jose. the visibility in the next hour will be reduced perhaps at sfo so you can expect some flight delays. also into the livermore valleys. so you folks not immune to that either. it looks right on through 9:00. here we are. at 6:00 you will notice how the fog really settles in to these low-lying valleys and it's going to take until, oh, maybe 10:00, 11:00 until that evaporates and then some hazy sunshine. with the cooler temperatures and fog we are looking at that widespread this morning. mid-30s napa. 39 in fairfield with 54 and the fog in oakland.
5:50 am
50 in san jose. 54 along the coast. so it's a patchy fog this morning. we are looking for slightly cooler numbers today so it doesn't look like you will see the low 70s return. still above the average. usually we should so low 60s this time of year. about midday to 2:00 in the afternoon we will see more of the sunshine and the numbers should take us into the mid-60s. the rainy pattern looks like it is going to return on tuesday night. so high pressure still sits off the coast. we've got the fog underneath the high and a few high clouds. some hazy sunshine today. it's going to take a little while for the system to move our way so we have a dry beginning of the week, some cloudy skies on tuesday. then there's a quick mover. i think we will see stronger winds than rain with this system. so enjoy that dry day today and a dry start to back to work on cyber monday. then by tuesday cloudy skies. we will stay dry but look what
5:51 am
lurks offshore over the overnight hours. really through 4:00, 5:00, it looks like the main band of rain heads our way but out ahead of it we will teal the effects with the wind. so today temperatures should be mild. still a nice afternoon with numbers ranking from 64 san francisco, that's down about 4 degrees from yesterday. 67 in oakland. 66 in san jose. so quite a ways to go to get there. and this afternoon look for the numbers to be even milder here with some upper 60s morgan hill. you have to go down to salinas to reach the lower 70 mark. a few degrees cooler with all the dense fog this morning. it will take a while to warm up. more soon shine tomorrow. here come for clouds on tuesday and the rain. wednesday and our break comes thursday but another system friday, saturday. so this one is going to tap into that what we call subtropical moisture. it's going to be a warmer system. >> so people heading out today especially out of sfo really need to check ahead? >> absolutely. yeah. >> all right.
